The Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund is preparing for the 4th Annual T-Fred Memorial Golf Tournament to be held Saturday, August 11, at the Nishna Hills Golf Course. While organizers say their mailing won’t go out until early June, they do have t-shirts available for sale now. The royal blue and silver t-shirts are $12 each and feature this year’s saying “Laid a lot of memories down, like tattoos on this town”. Melanie Petty, Fund representative, says “The saying is taken from Jason Aldean’s song, “Tattoos on This Town.’ The chorus of that song not only fits how Trevor lived but also what the Fund hopes to do in his memory.

Petty says the Fund’s logo is the tribal tattoo Trevor had designed of his name, making the saying even more appropriate.”  

(Here is the chorus to “Tattos on this town”: “It sure left its mark on us, We sure left our mark on it, We let the world know we were here, With everything we did, We laid a lot of memories down, Like tattoos on this town”)

To date, proceeds from the Annual T-Fred Tournament have funded over $35,000 in academic scholarships and donations to a variety of groups and organizations.  For information about the upcoming tournament or to order a t-shirt, contact Melanie Petty at 712-249-3696 or melaniepetty05@hotmail.com.
